catwoman the movie


Thought Van Helsing was the worst we would see this summer? Think again. Here comes Halle Berry in, what could be, the first huge failure of the summer, both critically and financially. Avoid this one at all costs folks. From the very start, the very idea of basing a film on a Batman villian was a bad idea. Turning her into a hero with super powers (catwoman has no powers, she's just at skilled theif) was a big mistake. With plenty of Marvel Films out there as great examples of HOW to do comic book films, WB's of course thinks they know better. Creating a film that is a mere shadow of the original character.
The supporting cast is also filled with terrible choices. Sharon Stone, Benjamin Bratt. When was the last time they made a good film? Remember Halle Berry and her terrible Storm perforomance in X-MEN? Have you SEEN Gothika? She should have her oscar ravoked for those atrocities.
Please be smart. Go watch something else this summer. Show WB that their contempt for the movie going audience has reached a new low. Catwoman deserves to bomb and than some.

The Last Waltz - movie DVD cover picture
One of the greatest rock and roll movies ever made


The Band's legendary concert film The Last Waltz was originally released in April of 1978.
To celebrate that the Canadian-American band called The Band were retiring from the `god---n impossible' life on the road after 16 years, The Band gave their farewell concert at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom on Thanksgiving Day, 1976.
To join them, they invited artists as diverse from The Staples Singers to Eric Clapton to Joni Mitchell to Dr. John to Muddy Waters and Neil Diamond(whom Band guitarist Robbie Robertson had produced his comeback Platinum effort Beautiful Noise released earlier in 1976) to celebrate everything from rock to country to bluegrass to jazz to blues.
The result was a concert that can only be described as dazzling and magical. The Band do ecstatic versions of some of their best songs like Up On Cripple Creek, Don't Do It, Stagefright, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down as examples and the guest artists are amazing. Van Morrison did the best version ever of Caravan, Muddy Waters proves why he is the M-A-N chile with his classic number Mannish Boy which was done by The Who as I'm a Man on the British version of My Generation in 1965. The Staple Singers send a shiver up your spine that can rend you comatose for life with their excellent duet with The Band on The Weight. Robbie Robertson and Eric Clapton bring the house down with their scorching six-string duel on Further On Up the Road. All this just to quote a few.
Direcrted by Martin Scorsese (the same man who directed Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas and Casino), this was more than your average rock concert documentary, it is a celebration of rock's history.
For years I thought The Band were boring but this film has made me a convert and were a superb live band.
The extra footage on of the DVD shows how Scorsese and Robertson discussing the creation of this movie.
I know some paint Robbie as the bad guy but he was right to walk away when he did because life on the road would take Richard Manuel's life tragically in 1986 and Rick Danko passed away in 1999 and Robbie Robertson shied away from rock and roll for a decade after The Lazt Waltz before returning to rock and roll with his first solo album in 1987 whilst Levon Helm and company carried on without the musical soul of the group.
The Last Waltz is HUGELY RECOMMENDED!

One more thing...


The original run of Columbo, staring Peter Falk, ran on NBC as part of the Sunday Mystery Movie. Columbo was one of four programs that aired on alternating weeks along with McCloud and McMillan and Wife. Unlike many of the cop shows from the 70's that are now showing up on DVD box sets, like S.W.A.T. or Baretta, Columbo holds up. The writing, by the likes of Steven Bochco, and the direction, which includes early efforts from Steven Spielberg were among the best television has produced. The guest stars regularly included Oscar winning greats. Best of all is Peter Falk as a man who appears to be less than he is. Columbo is one of the finest shows in the history of televison.

CATS ROCK!!


This is a really exciting DVD. This 3 piece crank out an awesome noise and put their heart and soul into it making a great show for the viewer. The guys are in great form working together well lead by the fantastic playing of Brian Setzer most of the time. Brian Setzer Orchestras 'Live in Japan' is very good but if you're choosing between the two this is way in front. One of the most entertaining DVD's I've seen. BUY IT!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The Complete Fifth Season - movie DVD cover picture
Buffy's Golden Season 5!


If season 4 of Buffy seemed a little unfocused and meandering, season 5 flew like a well-aimed arrow. Is it the greatest season? Well, next to Seasons 4 and 6, this season blazes, but most fans will still cite Seasons 1-3 as the golden age. Don't be so quick to toss this season aside, however, because there are some amazing stories that get told. Granted the inclusion of Dawn into the character line-up wasn't exactly a quantum leap forward in terms of loveable characters, but she'll grow on you later in the season (although that can't be promised in seasons 6-7). Tara's character is given a stronger voice throughout the season as well. Spike's character, however, becomes a casualty-that is, he goes from Big Bad to wisecracking sidekick, a hat he wears decently only half of the time. The Big Bad this season, was a woman named Glory. I personally had no problem with her, although many fans really hated the character. The struggle she has in the episode, "The Gift", with her human host for control of the body she inhabits is a true tour de force. There are many standout episodes here, more consistent than season 4. The opener, of course, "Buffy Vs. Dracula" is memorable, especially for Xander's turn as a minion. "No Place Like Home" sees Buffy enter a trance-like state to try to discern the nature of her mother's illness. The trance she enters is truly unnerving, especially as she wanders about the house watching two different realities phasing in and out. "Fool For Love" has Spike stringing Buffy along for the whole episode with his tales of how he killed two slayers. James Marsters rules here. "The Body" is an important episode because it sets the tone for the next two seasons that followed. It is not an easy episode to watch, and certainly not one of my favorites, but after this episode, the rest of the six episodes kick the season into high gear and take you to a truly breathless climax. For many Buffy purists, this was the proper end of the series, as seasons 6 and 7 were found by many fans to have been lacking the storytelling quality of past seasons. The jury will probably be out forever on the later seasons, but most fans will agree that Season 5 was one of the strongest. DVD features get better and better as the seasons progress (although the navigation menu for season 2 is still the coolest). I liked the featurette with Danny Strong and his demonologist bit. The season overviews you of course probably shouldn't watch if you don't already know the story, because they contain spoiler after spoiler.

Like wow! A fun, mind-blowing western!


Here's a wild, unexpected one: an electric western. John Rubenstein concocted a surprisingly fun movie in Zachariah, with appearances by the James Gang, Country Joe and the Fish, and Doug Kershaw, among others. If you are feeling free-spirited and looking for a good but laid-back time, this is one video to get.

cocunt banging, slapshot comedy!


You have to see this movie and I'll tell you why, most if not all of your friends have seen it and when they bust out with "The Vorpal Bunny" you'll have no idea what they're talking about and you will be totally out of the loop to some of the best "inside jokes". Go out and rent it, buy it, hey worship it i don't care but if I ever refer to Monty Python and you don't know what I'm talking about then "I will fart in your general direction".
